“So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” – Genesis 1:27
The Center for Disease Control (CDC), under the Biden Administration, has recently released guidance, that from a Christian perspective, could be labeled at the very least as an affront to motherhood. The CDC released guidance for biological men who identify as transgender women on how they can “chestfeed.”
So, what is this idea of “chestfeeding” or what is sometimes referred to as “bodyfeeding?” “Chestfeeding,” comes about when biological men take hormone drugs that manipulate their body to produce milk to “feed” a baby.
There are serious issues surrounding this advice from the CDC on “chestfeeding.” First, it must be noted that there is great concern from medical professionals about one of the hormone drugs in particular being dangerous to babies.
The FDA has warned that at least one of the hormone drugs used to “chestfeed,” “can pass into breast milk in small amounts and can sometimes give babies an irregular heartbeat as a result.” In addition, it is an absolutely gut-wrenching idea that any child would be exposed to “chestfeeding” and the health risk it imposes.
Furthermore, the CDC’s guidance on “chestfeeding” is an insult to women and motherhood. Carrying a child in the womb and breastfeeding that child is exclusively something that only biological women can do and that is because of God’s perfect design. The CDC needs to understand that suggesting a man can do what only a woman can is an attempt to devalue motherhood and promoting “chestfeeding” is a blatant disregard for a baby’s health.
LET US PRAY…
Father, thank You for Your perfect creation of humanity, being created either male or female in Your image. Lord, please protect innocent babies from the dangers of “chestfeeding.” Father, may the CDC change course and reverse this insane guidance. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
